With my writing goals I have to drag them back to basics.
No longer am I going to aim for the 2k words a day that I was because in reality the 2k a day was more 0 to 10 words a day word count. Re-reading Stephen Kings ‘On Writing’ I’ve taken away from it a sense of enthusiasm that I lost with writing. The ridiculous thing is my one and only book couldn’t be performing any better. It still maintains a decent Amazon ranking, reviews have been mainly positive and the money I’m earning from it is something I truly appreciate. This should be motivation enough… Anyway, before I go on and on, I’ll get down to business and it goes like this.
1. I’ll aim for 500 words written and 500 words edited a day.
2. This blog and something tangible to chart my progress on tools I will use to document my daily count as a form of accountability. (unfortunately I need this (o; )
3. A second book published by March 2016 and a novelette by April. (I’ll announce what I’m working on soon.)
4. Third book by July/August and fourth by November/December.
Four goals, although the third and fourth are kind of double goals but either way they will be 2016’s goals. I know this is kind of New Years resolution type stuff but I thought I’d do it a little early this year. I’ll let it settle into my mushy brain for a bit before I dive into New Years resolution mode.
So feel free to share your writing goals below or anything else you’d like to discuss. It’s an open book here.
